Abstract

An optical approach to monitoring the population densities of the rare gas dimer ions Xe//2** plus and Kr//2** plus in real time has been developed. An excimer laser is used to photodissociate the rare gas dimer ion via the 1(1/2)//u yields 2(1/2)//g UV absorption band and the resulting depletion of the molecular ion population is detected by observing the 6p yields 6s fluorescence of the neutral xenon or krypton atom. This technique has been applied to examining the formation kinetics of the triatomic rare gas-halide molecule Xe//2Cl
